As many are intimately aware, rhinos are critically endangered, and it takes a collective effort to achieve results, which is better than potential extinction.
Back on December 15, 2012, our good friend and industry professional, Kim Nixon, of Wilderness Safaris challenged author and co-worker Peter Allison to a boxing match, literally putting their bodies on the line to raise money for rhino conservation efforts. Billed as the “Fumble in the Fynbos”, the event took place in Cape Town, South Africa at The Armoury Boxing Club. The Cape Grace Hotel and Mala Mala Game Reserve generously contributed to the cause and the event. It is a privilege indeed to work with hospitality professionals whose beliefs are founded in conservation and respect for the environment.
The cause is a serious one. Never have rhinos been under such threat, and never have the conservation efforts to save them been more important. To celebrate their 30th birthday, Wilderness Safaris plans to relocate 30 rhinos to the safe haven of Botswana in 2013 and funds are desperately needed. Every donation is appreciated.
